Dell Wyse ThinOS Version 8.5 Administrator’s Guide


Classic interactive desktop guidelines

The Classic desktop has a Dell Wyse default background with a horizontal task bar at the bottom of the screen.

Use the following guidelines:

  • Icons representing available server connections and published applications are displayed on the background. If you pause the mouse pointer over an icon, the information about the connection will be displayed. Right-clicking on an icon opens the Connection Settings dialog box which displays additional information about the connection. The number of icons that can be displayed on the desktop depends on the desktop resolution and administrator configuration.
  • A server connection and published application can be opened by double-clicking a desktop icon or a user can navigate to the desktop icon they want by using tab key and pressing Enter to initiate the connection.
  • Right-clicking on the desktop provides a shortcut menu, see Using the shortcut menu.
  • Clicking the User Name or clicking on the desktop, opens the desktop menu, see Using the desktop menu.
  • User Name is the user who is logged-on and is located at the lower-left pane of the task bar.
  • If configured to display by an administrator, the volume control is displayed in the right corner of the taskbar and the current time and date are shown when the cursor is placed on the time; the thin client is capable of synchronizing its clock to time provided by a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server.
